Explore An Untamed Desert Wonderland

Situated on the northern face of the Huab River valley and looking south towards the imposing Brandberg Mountains, Damaraland Camp is rated as the most successful eco-tourism venture in Namibia. It’s also big game country, and although wildlife is not concentrated like it is at Etosha, Damaraland Camp is situated where the rare desert-adapted elephant roams alongside gemsbok (oryx), springbok, ostrich and other hardy desert animals. Lion and black rhino are also sometimes seen.

This comfortable, friendly camp offers guided nature walks and game drives in one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Namibia. And when you aren’t out looking for wildlife, you can set off on a mountain bike excursion or head for to Twyfelfontein – a World Heritage Site – to view ancient Bushman rock art.



Ten elevated adobe-style thatched suites celebrate the expansive Namib Desert with unimpeded vistas across the extraordinary plains. Accommodation at Damaraland Camp consists of 10 adobe-styled, thatched units each raised on individual wooden decking – part of which extends out to form a large viewing deck with magnificent vistas. Recently refurbished, each tent has en-suite facilities (shower only), a walk-in dressing area and built-in fanCool off in the pool, enjoy a spectacular breakfast stop in the desert, or relish a fireside boma evening of cultural cuisine, song and dance, canopied by countless stars.



 The spacious, thatched living area features a restaurant and bar, complete with fireplace. Evening meals at Damaraland Camp are often prepared over an open fire and served out in the open in an area near to the camp lit by an assortment of small lanterns. The swimming pool is conveniently sited next to the bar. An open campfire and outdoor ‘boma’ can be enjoyed during calm evenings, with superb stargazing in the crystal-clear night skies.  Activities at Damaraland Camp revolve around exploring the Haub River system, featuring game drives, guided nature drives, walks and mountain biking.
